Would it be beneficial to run my OS from the new drive opposed to my 250gb drive??

personally...I'd keep the OS on the smaller drive...put all my files in the 1TB.
that way in a fire...I'd be able to easily pop open the case and pull the 1T drive

Set up partitions.

Use the rest of the space for backups.

make sure you don't put anything important on big HD's, they tend to fail more than smaller HD's.

put everything else on the 1tb drive.

co sign. my macbook pro just has the OS running off the smaller (320 i think) HD. everything else is spread between a 500GB laCie HDD and a 500GB time capsule.

1 word: lossless.

Never go back to anything worse than a 320kbps MP3.

You'll be looking for another 1TB drive in no-time.
